Chris Berman Calls Cardinals Closer ‘Fernando Tossed Salas’ (Video)

I know there are plenty of people who are annoyed by Chris Berman, but personally I think he can be hilarious sometimes.  His quirky little nicknames are usually such a stretch that you can’t help but laugh at how dumb they are.  You also had to appreciate when he was brought back the stache.  Then, there are times when Berman makes a funny that even he can’t fully appreciate.

Here in the 21st century, you have to be careful about throwing the term “Tossed Salad” around.  Unless you’re actually tossing a salad (the garden variety) or referring to an act at the dinner table, it’s probably a good idea to keep that phrase on the backburner — even if there’s a closer on the Cardinals named Fernando Salas.  Berman will realize that on Wednesday if he’s into reading sports blogs.  Check out the Chris Berman “tossed salad” video, courtesy of The Big Lead:

Chris Berman Rocking the Mustache

Football season is back which means it’s time for four months of anchor Chris Berman’s Sunday NFL Countdown and fastest two minutes in football! Before you get too giddy, we’re here to warn you that the Berman you may be expecting won’t be there. Instead, you’ll see a retro version of Berman rocking the old school stache which seems to be a combination of part Dave Wannstedt, part Bernie Lomax. Check out the Chris Berman mustache pictures present day vs. past:

He called it the Ron Burgundy look but I think it’s just old school. It’s no John Axford, but it’s not bad, Boomer.

Chris Berman a CFL Celeb in Canada

And you thought Chris Berman only had incredible pull with the ladies in the U.S. Perhaps you were wrong. Turns out he’s taken his high-flying, bananas fostering, rumblin bumblin, marshall marshall marshall ass up to Canada where they truly appreciate his talents.

Football media personality Chris Berman of ESPN met Milt Stegall and Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ head coach Doug Berry at the CFL club’s practice today. And he crowed about what a CFL fan he is. Berman, the long-time, gravelly-voiced host of ESPN’s expansive NFL coverage, is in Winnipeg as guest speaker at tonight’s YMHA dinner. He showed up at Bomber practice and was presented with a team jersey with his name and Stegall’s No. 85 on it by club president/CEO Lyle Bauer. Then he chatted with Stegall and, later, Berry in the end zone while the practice was still on.

Apparently Boomer then went on to show off his limited CFL knowledge — probably the equivalent of saying “Hey, that Tom Brady guy is pretty good, huh?” You figure after the way he’s been torched here lately, he has no choice but to escape to America’s hat. It’s gotta be a self-esteem booster for him.
